Wellcome Prime Scholarships

Wellcome Prime Scholarships aim to support the most productive and innovative early career researchers at Nottingham who aspire to become future research leaders by supporting them in developing or enhancing their international profile.

The Wellcome Prime scheme is supported by a grant of £600,000 from the Wellcome Trust’s Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) alongside matched funding from the University of Nottingham. The ISSF funding is overseen by Professor David Brook in the School of Life Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Research Board. The selection panel for applications includes representatives from across the university, spanning Sciences, Medicine, the Arts and Humanities.

Between 2016 and 2020, funding was allocated in the form of Wellcome Prime Scholarships for the most productive and innovative early career researchers at Nottingham who aspire to become future research leaders by supporting them in developing or enhancing their international profile. Details of funded scholars can be found on the Current Scholars page.
